The portable media player is not a computer. It's not equipped with the DVD player or DVD drive. So, we cannot play the DVDs on one portable media player directly. We have to convert the DVD movies to the compatible videos for the target media player. And the MP4 is compatible with all portable players. Then, we need the DVD to MP4 software to convert DVD to MP4 video.
By the way, most DVD contents are protected by encryption for the copyright issue. It means that we cannot convert DVD movies to MP4 with the common DVD to MP4 video converter. We need some professional DVD to MP4 converter with decryption feature to break the limit.
And now, as I mentioned before, I just recommend WonderFox DVD Ripper to all users. it is really a good choice for us to rip and convert DVDs to videos.
The WonderFox DVD Ripper is easy to use. With the software, we can hold the DVD to MP4 conversion process easily. There are just three main steps to charge the whole ripping process: Load DVD > Set Profile > Get Start. The following is to show the details with the DVD to MP4 converter:
Step 1: Download and run the software
Step 2: Load DVD content and set profile; 2-1, Load video and select the video you want
2-2, Set profile to MP4 under "Common Video"
2-3, Set destination folder
Step 3: Start the process; 3-1, Click "Start" to run the conversion process
3-2, After process done, click "Find Target" to get the output
By finish the whole process above, we just have to copy the target videos to the target devices, and then, we can enjoy the DVD videos freely.
Now, there are so many different portable players available in the market. And everyone is different to the others, more or less (such as the screen resolution). And because of that, the required quality for video is different. So, we have to adjust the output videos for every specific device. And a good DVD to MP4 convert should allow us to do that. Then, what kind of the settings should we care about?
Resolution. We'd better keep the video resolution the same as the target player's screen resolution. If not, the video will not be played on the target device.
Video bit rate. It is in relation to the video quality. So, we'd better set it higher. But commonly, set it about 3000 kbps is enough.
Video encoder. If your media player supports HD videos, you can choose H264 as the encoder. If not, you'd better just set it MPEG4.
All in all, the WonderFox DVD Ripper is really a good choice for us to rip/convert dvd to MP4 video. With a DVD to MP4 converter software, we can easily rip DVD movies to MP4 video format. By the way, the DVD ripper runs well on Windows, so, we can easily convert DVD to PC, convert DVD to Hadr Drive, copy DVD to tablet, convert DVD to cell phone with it.
